Key Takeaways of the Graph:
Lack of awareness regarding the benefits of the products is affecting the demand for sodium acetate trihydrate & sodium acetate anhydrous. This factor is hindering market growth over the forecast period.
Availability of the other food preservatives in the market is restricting the use of sodium acetate trihydrate in the food application. Thus, easy availability of other food preservatives are projected to inhibit the market growth.
Sodium Acetate is one of the most common plasticizers used in the United States and around the world. It's used to extend or add the color, feel, or other qualities to a wide range of products from plastic containers to pharmaceuticals and even metal. The most common is the blue or clear plastic known as the propylene glycol or PEG. Sodium Acetate is added at the end of a polymerization or emulsification step to provide for a homogenous, white, transparent substance that can be poured into mold forms with no separation. It is a fairly inexpensive alternative to gemstones, metals, plastics, and composites.
Sodium Acetate Trihydrate & Sodium Acetate Anhydrous are commonly found together. One example of a product with these ingredients is the PEO compound that is included in many polymer products. Another example is sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) which is often added as an ingredient to hardener compounds such as polyimide binder resins and polyimide sheets
Robust growth in the pharmaceutical industry and increasing demand for leather products is driving growth of the sodium acetate trihydrate & sodium acetate anhydrous market.
On the other hand, availability of alternative food preservative is expected to hinder growth of the market.
